This sweet newborn photo session was so dreamy. His nursery was seriously the boy nursery of my dreams. It was drenched in morning light, and the blue gingham wallpaper was to die for. Not to mention, all the sweet little touches. There were plush animals and a chair, both from his mom and dad’s childhood, darling vintage books, and so much more. It was cozy and beautiful and such a dream for me as a Bay Area Newborn Photographer.

This little guy decided to make his grand appearance early, which seems to be the trend lately. Seriously though, so many of my clients are having babies early. Which is so fun because it means that I get to meet them early too! Michaels furry brother even took part in the photo session too, and those photos of them both together near the chair are so sweet! I love how Dre is just sitting there, looking out for his little bro.

When I first walked up to this family’s home I noticed the gorgeous front porch, and I just knew we had to take some photos on it. I love being able to take newborn clients outside into the natural light. I like to do it any opportunity I get when the weather is warm enough. These photos on the porch are some of my favorites. I love how relaxed and welcoming they feel.

Mama wore a gorgeous Hill House nap dress, which I adored the blue floral pattern on. I had never seen one in real life before, and now i’m pretty convinced that I need to purchase one for myself. And her hubby and little man wore colors that compliment both her and the nursery. It was a dreamy newborn session, and definitely one for the books!
